The RGD is Ibanez's ultimate metal machine. The demands of down-tuning require a specifically designed responsiveness not found in "normal" guitars. To optimize for the rich, desired tone thickness that down-tuning produces, we extended the neck by an inch to a 26.5 "scale. Longer than standard but not overly long. The neck is still considered a" fast "scale. neck for speed Extra deep cut-outs give comfortable access to the highest notes of the neck.
The RGD7UC has a basswood body that is paired with a 26.5 "(672mm) scale maple and wenge Wizard-7 neck with a 24-fret ebony fingerboard with binding and no position markers. Components include dual Bare Knuckle humbucking pickups, a Tight-End R fixed bridge and Gotoh-locking tuners.
